We met Abe Lincoln tonight!

Tonight the girls and I went to the public library in Smithville, and met Abe Lincoln.  If the program comes to a Mid Continent Library near you, I highly recommend it.

The library had an actor, protraying Lincoln who spoke and answered questions about Lincoln and his life. Elizabeth is taking a civil war class and he also spoke about the Civil War. The girls will get 60 minutes of history credit for our attending.

The temperature reached almost 70 degrees today, yet we still have some snow and ice on the farm. And mud. Lots and lots of mud.  We also have lots of puddles from the melted snow.  Our ducks were having a hayday swimming in the yard.  Even one of the labs jumped in for a swim.

Monday it is supposed to be back down to the 30's, so we are enjoying it while we can.
